Smarter Balanced Assessments - Practice Opportunities at Home
We are encouraging all families to set aside some time to help your student practice for the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) coming this May for grades 3, 4 & 5. The Smarter Balanced Assessment is a system of valid, reliable, and fair next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy & Math. Please use the following link to access the Practice & Training Tests (for ELA, Math and WCAS (5th grade science - see below):
Click on the icon for Practice & Training Tests, sign in as a Guest, and select your child's grade level when prompted.
Along with the SBA, fifth grade students will also take an additional assessment in science, called the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS). The WCAS will assess all three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards. For more information about this assessment follow this link: http://www.k12.wa.us/Science/Assessments.aspx
